Figure 3: (a) Axial chest computed tomography image in the bone window reveals the asymmetric enlargement of the head of the right fifth rib (arrow). (b) Axial chest computed tomography image in soft-tissue window shows the focal extrapleural proliferation of fat tissue (arrow) between the intrathoracic rib and normal rib cage. (c) Coronal reformatted computed tomography image in soft-tissue window demonstrates the additional triangular soft-tissue density fibrous bands (arrow) arising from the supernumerary rib and connecting to the right diaphragm resulting in the right diaphragm elevation
